Dear Dr. Mike;
The United Nations has a law signed by the US which forbids military recruiting of underage children. Therefore any recruiting by the military of any underage child is a violation of international law and by a signed agreement US law. Therefore all recruiters doing as such should be prosecuted for doing such.
When a child becomes a teenage 18 they very miraculously become adults and can sign contracts - although they aren't considered old enough to drink. Then a recruiter can come on after them - although off campus so the recruiter doesn't violate international law and of course would be prosecuted for doing so and creating an undue influence on underage children.
Although there wasn't time at the meeting I would prefer to see Jr ROTC replaced by a Jr. NERT program. This way teenagers can be taught life saving and disaster help skills which can be used to save lives not as in the military where people are trained to kill. I also suspect a Jr. NERT program would be far more attractive and would attract far more students - BY CHOICE - and even create competitions among high schools as to how many studenst completed the program and competiton disaster drills for fun and games..
